A budget Android tablet that performs like a budget device

Nextbook Next5

from TabletPCReview
In the end, I consider it a minor miracle that I didn't end up throwing the Next5 across the room in pure frustration when I found myself grappling with the touchscreen's lousy performance. My final verdict: if you don't mind using a stylus to navigate your Android device or you have particularly long fingernails, you might enjoy this creation. But if you're expecting it to perform at least something like the other more expensive tablets you've seen, guess again... Full review

A decent budget tablet/ereader combination

Nextbook Next6

from The eBook Reader
It's still using the same software and mostly the same hardware last year's NextBooks used, so its functionality is limited. A lot of games aren't going to work, the screen resolution could be better, and adding apps can be tricky with no Android Market access and the Amazon appstore doesn't work. For an extra $50 - $75 you can find an ereader/tablet with better specs and Android 2.2 so it all depends on how much you're willing to spend... Full review

The buggy reader and unupgradeable OS will drive away potential buyers

Nextbook Next6

from The Gadgeteer
I like the Next6 hardware quite a bit. Sometimes it actually feels a little snappier to me than the Nook Color and I found the multi-touch capacitive display to feel more responsive than the Nook as well. The things that bother me about this player are the buggy reader and market apps and the fact that it can’t be upgraded to newer versions of the OS. For these reasons, I’m torn as to whether I can really recommend the Next6... Full review

The Next5 offers decent stylus input, but the rest of the tablet experience is deeply flawed

Nextbook Next5

from Laptop Magazine
Android tablets that have both pen and finger input are rare, which is why EFun's Next5 tablet--and its $299 price--were initially intriguing. However, this slate's sluggish performance, woefully inaccurate touchscreen, and cheap design make it a poor option for users looking for a versatile 7-inch tablet. If you absolutely must have a tablet with pen input, save up for the EVO View 4G or the HTC Flyer. But buying the EFun Next5 would be like throwing your money away.  .. Full review

It's one of the better Android tablets to choose from in its price category

Nextbook Next3

from The eBook Reader

At $199 I feel comfortable recommending the Next3 given it feature-set and usability, especially considering most similar devices like the 9" Pandigital Novel and the smaller 7" PocketBook IQ, Cruz Tablet, and Pandigital Novels all sell in the same price category of around $150 - $200.
But at $299? I would not recommend it for that. Sure it comes with a cover and is larger than the 7-inchers mentioned above, but at that price you can get a device with better specs than the Next3. Even at $250 the Nook Color has a faster processor, much better screen quality (although smaller), hacks fo... Full review

It seems rushed and subsequently broken in some aspects

Nextbook Next3

from TabletPCReview

Now that they're the next big thing, there's a flood of tablets coming from every company across the board, and the Next3 is a perfect example of what most of them will be like. It seems rushed in an attempt to quickly get its foot in the door and compete in the burgeoning tablet market. It's mediocre at the very best, with nothing to set it apart from the rest of the crowd. It even lacks certain features that would have made it an average tablet—such as a stronger processor; data or Bluetooth connectivity; a sharper, more responsive display; better, more functional apps—and the...

Great now that it has Google Play!

I bought this tablet for myself for Christmas from HSN. It's the best of both worlds combining e-reader and computer in a nice 7 inch size. I love this little jewel as the price is right, picture is sharp, color is great, touch screen very responsive, ease of use is perfect, and it has google play... More
I bought this tablet for myself for Christmas from HSN. It's the best of both worlds combining e-reader and computer in a nice 7 inch size. I love this little jewel as the price is right, picture is sharp, color is great, touch screen very responsive, ease of use is perfect, and it has google play for apps! I can pop it in my purse because of the size, whip it out when there is wi fi and I expanded the memory by adding the 32g micro memory card. I only would have liked to see two things added 1= louder speakers (I bought external and have buds) and 2= that it came with 4g, but I'm hoping my phone can become a hot spot..... Less
It doesn't even have google play store app, i have one of these tablets, the Ebooks part of it isnt great, its okay, you cannot get decent games, and you cannot download much, 2.7 of the 4 GB of storage is used on pre-installed apps. If your going to pay this much money, get a Kindle Fire. its touch... More
It doesn't even have google play store app, i have one of these tablets, the Ebooks part of it isnt great, its okay, you cannot get decent games, and you cannot download much, 2.7 of the 4 GB of storage is used on pre-installed apps. If your going to pay this much money, get a Kindle Fire. its touch and resolution are okay , but the screen looks as if it has an oily film on it, because on a white back ground you always see the colors like when you get a screen wet, if that makes sense, and no matter how often you wipe it off, its always there. Just don't waste your money. Less
